Very cool. What is the skin? And who cares if it is fast as long as it catches fish.

That is really nice , like that you used your own design

Great project, hard to believe it’s made from foam insulation.

This was a new, fun project to build myself a new sit on top, fishing kayak. The design is my own. It has preformed very well thus far. It consists of an inner frame of maple wood with the tops of the frame visible and usable as a rail on top of the boat. The body is made from 2" X 4" X 8" foam insulation from Lowes. The seat is also my own design and folds down for easier loading and carrying. It is a slow boat due to the width of 40 inches but it is stable enough to stand and fish.

There are several tutorials on the web on how to build this type of kayak. Very Helpful.
